Apart from any other problems in your code, the -if- statement always goes before the comma separating the command from its options...

twoway (tsline Women) (tsline Men)/*
*/ (tsline child) if tin(Mar 2003, Mar 2008),/*
*/ title(Women Children and Men,size(small)) /*
*/note(Source: IBC , size(vsmall))

Dear Statalist,

I am doing some tsline graphs and I get an error with the "if tin" option.


I have data staring in March 2003 and runs for five years. When I do a graph with twoway tsline, the X axis starts with Jan 2003 and ends in Jan 2008 even if there are no observations. I tried to use the if tin but I get an error message. Can anyone let me know how to modify dates so the X axis starts from Mar 2003 and goes until Mar 2008 as my data suggests?


. tsset mdate mdate, format(%tmMon_CCYY)
      panel variable:  mdate (weakly balanced)
       time variable:  mdate, Mar 2003 to Mar 2008
               delta:  1 month
tab mdate

     mdate |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
  Mar 2003 |          1        1.64        1.64
  Apr 2003 |          1        1.64        3.28
  May 2003 |          1        1.64        4.92
  etc...
  etc......
  Jan 2008 |          1        1.64       96.72
  Feb 2008 |          1        1.64       98.36
  Mar 2008 |          1        1.64      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
     Total |         61      100.00



. twoway (tsline Women) (tsline Men) (tsline child), title(Women Children and Men,size(small)) note(Source: IBC , size(vsmall)) if tin(Mar 2003, Mar 2008)

option if not allowed
r(198);


thanks in advance,
Gaby
